    "In the portrayal of the conflict between work and love, duty and pleasure, guilt and hope, Jansson exceeds the conditions of life without abandoning the people who succumb beneath them.”—Göteborgsposten, Swedish newspaper

    "Probably the best book I’ve read by Anna Jansson, thrilling indeed."—Norra Västerbotten, Swedish newspaper

    "As always, Anna Jansson delivers good crime novels, some in the series are better than the others and Killer’s Island is doubtless among the best."—Carola Lindström, Barnboksbloggen

    "[Killer's Island] subsumes to the same genre as its forerunners: Disgusting violence, constant growing suspense, the focus on phenomena in the society and physcological explanations"—Dalarnas Tidning, Swedish newspaper

    "I've been watching the Maria Wern TV series, produced by Swedish television and broadcasted in the US by MhZnetworks, and have been waiting anxiously for some of Anna Jansson's books (on which the series is based) to appear in English translation."—International Noir Fiction, blog


    The Gotland Island myth of the White Sea-Lady—a young bride who drowned on her wedding night lures men into the watery depth—is conjured up one midsummer morning, just before a nurse is found murdered in a wedding dress. Detective Inspector Maria Wern is put on the case to investigate, but soon realizes she is under observation by the killer.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen excellent Scandinavian thriller 17. Oktober 2012
    Von audrey - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
    There must be something remarkable in the Scandinavian water supply! Like many others, I began by reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and then moved on to other Scandinavian writers -- and I have enjoyed all of them, including this one from Anna Jansson about a Swedish detective, Maria Wern, who is investigating the macabre death of a nurse who was beheaded and then arranged in a public park to look like a bride. Several other incidents could be related -- the apparent suicide of the nurse's neighbor, the assault of a police officer and the murder of a young boy. But are they related? Only with time do the links become apparent, and the suspect is a shock.

    I really enjoyed this novel. The characters were drawn so beautifully. Even the people we don't get to know are fleshed out and made so complex, so human, that we miss them when they're gone. Jansson brilliantly evokes the individual personalities and the consequences of violence, and the ending was surprising but plausible.

    A great thriller written superbly. The next in the series is Strange Bird.

    Note: The Kindle edition had a few typos but nothing horrible, and the maps rendered well.

    4.0 von 5 Sternen "When murder's taken place, evil seems to lurk in every alley." 29. Juli 2012
    Von Luan Gaines - Veröffentlicht auf
    Jansson delivers a solid thriller based on a myth from the Swedish island of Gotland, the White Sea-Lady, a tale over 3,000 years old about a young woman who drowned on her wedding night, forever after luring men to a watery grave. Myth becomes reality in a tightly woven plot where a silent killer graphically disposes of a number of select individuals, a boy and a police officer set upon by thugs, an elderly hypochondriac hanged in a neighbor's flat and a quiet nurse savagely beheaded, her body rearranged as a ghastly bride with a wedding bouquet to be discovered by passersby. The material characters are carefully integrated into the fabric of the mystery, each a pivotal part of the unfolding nightmare, each experiencing the presence of death in human form.

    We meet each victim prior to their deathly scenarios, begin to understand their aspirations and failed dreams, their daily struggles, the murderer closing in like an avenging angel, leaving Gotland detectives scrambling for answers before yet another unsuspecting victim is chosen. While the myth is romantic, the devastation to families and neighbors by the stealthy killer has all too human consequences, detectives finally making sense of disparate clues, but perhaps too late to avert another tragedy. The visual images are striking, the death tableau disturbing and the identity of the killer shocking. Jansson beautifully captures the emotional damage sustained by those living on Gotland, touched by the particular horror of a psychotic killer without conscience. Luan Gaines/2012.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Would like to read earlier books in series 31. Dezember 2012
    Von Amelia68 - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
    Ever since Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy I have been exploring the genre of Scandinavian thrillers, and am always excited to read the works of a new (to me) author. This is the first of Anna Jansson's books I have read, and I was drawn in by the premise of an old Nordic legend being connected to modern day murders.

    One of the main protagonists. policewoman Maria Wern, is attacked early in the novel when coming to the help of a young boy being viciously assaulted by a group of men. The boy later dies, and Maria is left with the trauma of her own injuries as well as not having been able to prevent the crime.

    The story line fans out at this stage, introducing several new characters. Nurse Linn Bogren, who is soon murdered in cold blood, beheaded and displayed in a public park dressed as a bride. Harry Molin, her hypochondriac neighbour. Erika, Maria's colleague involved in the murder investigation, and Anders Ahlström, her love interest and a doctor at the local clinic, who saw all the murder victims shortly before their death. And then there is the old legend of the White Sea-Lady, which bears uncanny resemblance to the way the murder victim Linn Bogren has been displayed. As police are frantically trying to find the murderer before he claims any more lives, Erika herself may be becoming the focus of the ruthless killer.

    Apparently this is the 11th book in the Maria Wern series, and in the beginning of the novel I did have the impression of arriving half-way through a movie - whilst this did not end up presenting a problem with the plot, being familiar with the characters may have helped understand some of the complicated relationships and motivations. Due to the many storylines in the beginning, the book read a bit clumsy and disjointed for me, and it took until about halfway through the story to connect some of the threads and work out the who-is-who and what-is-what. At this point, the pace really picked up, the mystery deepened and the threat to one of the main characters had me frantically turning the pages to find out how it would all work out. True to its genre, the thriller does not shy away from exposing the darker side of human nature, and the isolation and loneliness often present in our midst, reminiscent of cold dark winter nights. Some of the characters' motivations were a bit questionable, but cannot be commented on without having read earlier books in the series and understanding their backgrounds. I personally would have liked to see the legend of the White Sea-Lady feature a bit more in the novel, which could have added a stronger element of mystery - it had such potential to chill!

    All in all, the book was a perfect way to chill on a hot day, and despite the few issues mentioned I really enjoyed the journey. I would be interested to read more from this author, especially some of the earlier books in the series, who are currently only available in Swedish. For fans of Nordic fiction, this is definitely worth a try.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen One of my favorites! 14. Juni 2012
    Von Tricia - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition
    If you like crime novels that constantly keep you on the edge of your seat, this book is for you. Dark and suspenseful, this book takes place on a small tourist island in Sweden and is a real page-turner with unexpected twists and turns. A very satisfying read.

    1.0 von 5 Sternen Poor Excuse for a Crime Thriller 30. Dezember 2012
    Von Dianne - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    I am a big fan of international crime fiction - Jo Nesbo, Hakan Nesser, Karin Fossum, Peter James, Stuart Pawson, Graham Hurley - the list of really good authors goes on and on. After reading the reviews, I had hoped to have found another. Unfortunately, Anna Jansson, is not in their class, in my opinion. I feel as though the reviewers and I must have read a different book. I blame some of my displeasure on the translation. The sentences were choppy, odd cliches were used, punctuation and syntax was incorrect, even wrong words used (life assurance policy.) But the story line must be the author's herself. The red herrings along the way were clumsy and transparent. The ending was trite and predictable; certainly not waiting for. All the characters, including main, and I understand, continuing character, Maria, were wooden and not fleshed out at all. No one had any depth, and I didn't care about any of them. The love relationships seemed superficial and teenaged crush-like. Compared to other Scandinavian authors, the locale was not even interesting. I had no visual of Jansson's Gotland. I guess it's clear that I won't be seeking out any of the remaining twelve in this series, should they be translated. I do hope the author or publisher finds another translator, however, for everyone's sake. To add my own cliche, you get what you pay for. At $2.99, this wasn't even a bargain.
